Rep. Tim Ryan: 2 officers suspended in Capitol riots Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Ohio, said Monday two police officers were suspended related to the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol. When asked if he’s heard evidence there was an “inside job” on Jan. 6, Ryan said, “I don’t have any direct evidence, as yet, of any kind of inside job,” but said two members of the Capitol Police were suspended. “I know that there were two people suspended, one was the selfie officer, and another was an officer who put a MAGA hat on and started directing people around,” Ryan said. “The interim chief determind that to be qualifying for immediate suspension,” he said. Capitol Police did not immediately return a request for comment. USCP union chief Gus Papathanasiou said Monday that he had not been briefed on the matter. Acting Homeland Security chief Wolf resigns Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf is stepping down from his post, days after criticizing President Donald Trump over the riot at the U.S. Capitol. Wolf said in a message to staff that he would step down at 11:59 p.m. Monday, even though he had earlier said he planned to remain in his job. He said Pete Gaynor, who runs the Federal Emergency Management Agency, would become the acting homeland security secretary. The resignation comes a day before Trump is set to visit the U.S.-Mexico border wall. Last week, Wolf asked Trump and all elected officials to “strongly condemn the violence” that took place at the Capitol. Five people died, including a U.S. Capitol Police officer. Wolf said he has condemned violence on both sides of the political aisle, specifically directed at law enforcement. He tweeted “we now see some supporters of the President using violence as a means to achieve political ends” and called that unacceptable.
